The four-member Kim family lives in a small, run-down flat and is constantly struggling with money. Recommended by a friend, son Ki-Woo gets a chance to work for the rich Park family, and he starts putting together a grand plan… Bong’s masterful genre interplay, with its strong social message, unpredictable narrative, and skillfully paced, darkly comic scenes, deservedly earned the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes IFF.


Synopsis

The four-member Kim family lives in a small, run-down flat and is constantly struggling with money. Recommended by a friend, son Ki-Woo gets a chance to work at a luxurious villa as a tutor for the daughter of the rich Park family, and he starts putting together a grand plan… After two years, Korean director Bong Joon-ho returned to the competition at Cannes with a film that he called “a comedy without clowns, a tragedy without villains.” Bong’s masterful genre interplay, with its strong social message, unpredictable narrative, and skillfully paced, darkly comic scenes, deservedly earned the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes IFF.
